Employee wellbeing is extremely important to us, and that's why we offer competitive benefits to all employees across the firm. Our benefits programs often go above and beyond legal requirements and cover:
- Physical wellbeing – Our benefits work to enhance employees' physical health and to protect against unforeseen events. A range of offerings, including insurance coverage and wellness programs, are available in all of our locations.
- Mental wellbeing – Our Employee Assistance Program offers support and counseling to employees and their immediate family as they go through life’s challenges. We teamed up with an external provider to promote mindfulness and support resiliency in managing stress. We also offer generous time-off benefits, along with a variety of paid and unpaid leave options and flexible working opportunities to fit your personal needs.
- Financial wellbeing – We're an equal opportunity employer, committed to pay equity for all employees. We also understand how important retirement and financial planning are to employees, and that's why we provide comprehensive pension plans and an employee stock purchase plan.
- Social wellbeing – Through the UBS Optimus Foundation we drive impactful philanthropy that delivers real solutions for social needs. To complement this, we match employee charitable donations and provide paid leave for employees to volunteer their time on community and environmental initiatives, in addition to UBS-organized community events. In fact, our employees logged 202,784 volunteer hours in 2019.
